Red light to Connelly

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

The City of Greenville is finally getting red light cameras. Many thanks to our city leaders for going through the arduous process of gaining support from the city council, the county commissioners, the school board and the North Carolina General Assembly.

All of the fines paid by violators will go to the public schools. This is an important public safety initiative, but one of the candidates for mayor, P.J. Connelly, was unsupportive when this came before the city council.

On March 20, when the Greenville City Council put this program in place, Connelly voted against it. This is often the case with safety initiatives.

Fortunately, good things continue to happen in our fine city because Connelly is rarely able to find others to support his extreme positions.

Neither of these characteristics — extremism and an inability to effectively persuade others — are good qualifications for a mayor.

While the argument over the 2nd Amendment carries on in the DR, some of our sclerotic legislators introduced a two-page piece of legislation Thursday, HB 965, that is a direct affront to both the U.S. Constitution and the Bible. Should this bill pass, both public school and charter school students…

In reference to the column by Walter Williams talking about Kanye West being a problem for the Democratic Party, I admire Kanye West for standing tall and speaking his heart. I don't think most people, if polled, would agree that they like change.

If your friends told you that you could do certain…

So the Democratic arm, the N.C. Association of Educators, wants to return to the glory days of Gov. Bev Perdue. Someone close to me taught during the Perdue administration. It was four years without a pay increase. Perdue actually broke the state contract with the teachers and withheld part of…

I am shocked and ashamed that our government supports the current murderous regime of Israel. I don't understand how we, as American citizens, can stand by and calmly observe the unwarranted murder of more than 50 Palestinians and the wounding and maiming of hundreds more by the Israeli…

Entering hurricane season, I recall Irene (which hit Pitt County in August 2011).

At that time, I was discussing with Mrs. LaRue Evans, a cousin and historian of Winterville, about putting my homeplace on the national historic registry because of its architecture

This home was built in the 20th…

Cokie and Steve Roberts’ column in The Daily Reflector on May 10 begs the question: Why have a House chaplain at all? If there is currently so much controversy between Catholics and Protestants, who share a belief in the same god, how much worse is it going to get as the U.S. (and likely the…

Any honest, fair-minded, law-abiding citizen who attended the April 23 Pitt County Board of Commissioners meeting that considered a re-zoning request by Bill Clark Homes has to have anger still punching his/her gut along with frustration.

An overflow crowd of thoughtful citizens of Moss Bend, Holly…

A few weeks ago I wrote to correct Tinsley Yarbrough’s claim that the Supreme Court in its Heller decision limited the Second Amendment to protecting only the arms available at the time of the adoption of the Constitution. In that letter I also suggested accuracy is important with issues as…

We were very pleased to read about our Greenville city leaders stepping up to provide sidewalks for our community. Well-planned sidewalks are what we want and deserve to live in safe, healthy communities. Walking and biking projects make communities and neighborhoods more livable by ensuring all…

Let’s listen to Garth Brooks song about “friends in low places,” and dedicate it to the “friends” hovering around Washington, D.C.

What we have is a very sad collection of cabinet members, appointed officials, and some elected representatives who are keeping their…
